What are we learning about?
Why is it important?
How is it going? What’s next?
These questions are simple, but at the same time can be profoundly helpful for teachers, students and parents. Each one invites deep reflection about what matters most for learners.
When students know exactly what they are learning about and how that learning fits into their world, the work suddenly seems much more interesting and fulfilling!
We want to invite you to Tribes Parent Training where we will explore these types of questions to help us better understand and support our children in their learning.
Tribes is a process that fosters the development of collaborative and academic skills by creating a caring environment and delivering curriculum content in an active and student centered manner.
The purpose of the Tribes process is to assure the healthy development of every child so that each one has the knowledge, skills and resiliency to be successful in a rapidly changing world.
Several Parents have attended Tribes training sessions together. We are also continuing to study and discuss Tribes during PTSA meetings, and have discovered that Tribes training for parents creates a great bridge between home and school. Tribes training establishes common collaborative language for parents, students and teachers.
Training will start on Wednesday, March 11th with module 1, and will continue with modules 2 and 3 on September 16th and 18th. We will offer this training during the school day from 8:00 a.m. till 11:00 a.m.
The school is providing Tribes training at no cost to parents. I look forward to seeing you!
